NFL Power Rankings, After Week 5 of the 2019 Season

CyberRat
Roughly a 1/3 of the way through the regular season, and as usual we see some teams start to show their plans coming to fruition. For 3 quarters, the Packers were the best team on this weekend, they had everything going right. Buffalo continues to show their defense is on a par with the best, and the Saints continue to win without Drew Brees. The Raiders 2nd win in a row was an eye catcher as well.

The Top Ten

1 New England Patriots New England Patriots The New England Patriots are a professional American football team based in the Greater Boston region. New England Patriots are one of the few teams to have 5+ wins in the Super Bowl.

The combined record of the Patriots opponents this year, minus the Bills, is 1-17. Hell, with the Bills its 5-18. Here comes the 2-3 Giants. - CyberRat

The cupcake schedule continues. But they show up each week and play the right way. The one tough game at least showed they can be tested.

2 Green Bay Packers Green Bay Packers The Green Bay Packers are a professional American football team based in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The Packers compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference North division. The Packers have won 4 super bowls and 13 NFL championships.

For how dominant they were for 3 quarters at Dallas, they deserve this spot. That was very impressive. The schedule gets tougher in the 2nd half, and maybe Dallas is being exposed as a pretender, but for at least this week, the Pack is definitely back. Great gameplan and execution

3 San Fransisco 49ers

They're actually doing pretty goo - sonictiger

Why won't the top tens files call up the 'Niners logo all the sudden? I'll add it later... The Monday night win over the Browns keeps the 'Niners ahead of Sea and LAR in the NFC West. they still have the 4 games against those 2, and obviously those will be pivotal.

4 New Orleans Saints New Orleans Saints The New Orleans Saints are a professional American football team based in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Saints currently compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference South division.

Beat Tampa Bay, and I think its obvious the Bucs are better. Saints will be a load when Brees returns I think, and continue to find ways to win. Bridgewater had a very good game. Interesting fact: Mike Evans has 2 games in his career when he's been totally shut out, no catches. Both have come against the Saints

5 Kansas City Chiefs Kansas City Chiefs The Kansas City Chiefs are a professional American football team based in Kansas City, Missouri. The Chiefs compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's American Football Conference West division.

The Colts went into that hornets nest and completely quieted that crowd, no small feat. Great gameplan, and the Chiefs have work to do, especially run defense. They won't go very far in January if they can't stop the run.
Next: Houston - CyberRat

6 Buffalo Bills Buffalo Bills The Buffalo Bills are a professional American football team based in the Buffalo–Niagara Falls metropolitan area that competes in the National Football League. Buffalo Bills had the longest playoff drought of any team which came to an end in 2017.

Some offensive coordinator will eventually find some holes in this defense, that usually happens, but at the moment Buffalo is a force. Playing just well enough on offense to take advantage of the good field position supplied by their defense. It definitely hurt the Titans chances that their kicker, Cairo Santos, missed on all 4 of his FG attempts, tying the most misses in an NFL game since the merger.

7 Seattle Seahawks Seattle Seahawks The Seattle Seahawks are a professional American football franchise based in Seattle, Washington. The Seahawks compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference West division.

Tough team to figure out, but they hang tough in games, then Wilson works his magic towards the end. They'll have to become a more well rounded team to hang with the NFC's elite teams, but they have the players to pull it off.

8 Philadelphia Eagles Philadelphia Eagles The Philadelphia Eagles are a professional football franchise based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Eagles compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference East division.

Its true the star-crossed Jets are not a good enough team to gauge yourselves against, but the talented Eagles appear to have the ship righted. The games against the Cowboys now have added incentive for Philadelphia, given the Cowboys recent struggles.
Next: @ Minnesota - CyberRat

9 Los Angeles Rams Los Angeles Rams The Los Angeles Rams are a professional American football team based in the Los Angeles metropolitan area.

It truly was difficult to include this team after that choke job. But lets face it, they have the talent and coaching to easily stay relevant in the NFC West, and the NFL as a whole.

10 Indianapolis Colts Indianapolis Colts The Indianapolis Colts are an American football team based in Indianapolis, Indiana. The Colts compete in the National Football League as a member club of the American Football Conference South division.

Great job Colts. Great game plan to slow the Chiefs juggernaut passing game. The 10th spot this week came down to the Colts, Raiders, Texans, Lions, Bears, Ravens, Cowboys, Panthers and Vikings. The Colts had the most impressive win of this group. Although the Raiders caught everyones attention as well.

The Contenders

11 Dallas Cowboys Dallas Cowboys The Dallas Cowboys are a professional American football team based in the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex. The Cowboys compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference East division.

I gotta believe the recent struggles are directly tied to injuries on the O-line. Once they get healthy there, I believe they become very good again. - CyberRat

12 Carolina Panthers Carolina Panthers The Carolina Panthers are a professional American football team based in Charlotte, North Carolina, that competes in the National Football League.
13 Oakland Raiders Oakland Raiders The Oakland Raiders are a professional American football franchise based in Oakland, California. The Raiders began playing in 1960 as a member club of the American Football League; they have been a member club of the National Football League since the 1970 AFL–NFL merger.

We have a very small amount of time to continue to call them the Oakland Raiders, as they soon will move to Las Vegas. Just thought I'd take the opportunity to mention that. For many, it must seem like just another greedy sports team moving to a more prosperous environment, and while that is undeniable, it does make me a little sad for the fans in Oakland, who have already endured the team moving once to Los Angeles, before returning to Oakland.
